Harry's first barn conversion in Buckinghamshire

Sympathetically extending and breathing new life into this fabulous country home

This is the first of a number of barns we have converted for Harry. He has a passion for barn conversions and so have we! It allows us to use traditional materials but with the latest technologies, to achieve truly spectacular results.

In this instance, we even hand built all the roof trusses and the curvaceous staircase. But before we could get started, we had to underpin the existing walls, rebuild other walls, and create new window and door openings.

I am writing to tell you how delighted we both are with our new Barn in Thornborough. You and your team have always been extremely helpful with advice and together we have achieved a fantastic result. Enormous attention to detail, oak door frames and architraves, and so many little extras, make all the difference.

The building now benefits from underfloor heating, powered by a ground source heat pump. 90% of the lighting is low energy and the home super-insulated, making it very energy efficient. While the bats (the original inhabitants) are now safely housed in the new garage – a condition of the planning permission!
